New Twitter Code - Update

Just a little update to my previous post, there was a bug in the time since tweet displayed, due to the two different Twitter API's formatting the string differently.

New Twitter Code

I know I just posted a twitter code, but since then I decided to have twitterfeed blast my blog posts to my twitter and my Facebook. However, this posed a problem when the twitter feed on the blog was being filled with tweets about blog posts :)

To combat this problem we had to change how the feed worked.

Mail2Blogger is absolutely useless

What is the point of a service you cannot use? Why am I under flood control just because I imported an xml file 12 hours ago?

Custom Twitter Callback

The source to my basic, yet slightly enhanced Twitter Callback for Blogger or any page really :)

My Enhancements include:
  1. #hashtag link creation
  2. In Reply To support (shows who I'm replying to and a link to their status like twitter.com)
  3. via support (again like twitter.com, shows from what client I posted)

Blogger

Since I use my Google Account for everything else I might as well use blogger I guess. Needing a free host anyway.

So I imported my Facebook Notes, the only last remaining copy of my old blog posts. It seems that I lost the 2004-2006 posts :(

As for the theme, I built it using code from my current YouTube Channel Page, which I think looks snazzy

High Speed Recursive Linux Permission Changer

I wrote this a while back to help aid my needs, I am posting it in case you may find it helpful.

It is fairly easy, you run it in the directory you want to recursively change permissions on.

For example:
perl perms.pl 750 640 zefie zefie
Would set all files under my home directory to 640 (rw/r/-), and all directories to 750 (rwx/rx/-), and make the owner and group "zefie".
